Smile Thats Me!

Hi all,

Im Ameya. Im in the third year of 'Production Engineering' at Father Agnel CoE, Bandra.I did 12th at Jai Hind ,and schooling at Cathedral & John Connon, Fort.

Cars are my passion. And im crazy after supercars. Its their technology and exotic material usage that facinates me. Understanding their aerodynamic profiles is something i hope to study in detail at a later stage. Their power and torque figures are truly awesome! Im a Koenigsegg fan !

I am a keen collector of 1:18 die-cast models. I also play alot of LEGO Technic , trying to develop new suspension set-ups etc.

I also follow most motorsport events! I hope to rally raid Dakar someday too! WRC is also my cup of tea.

I hope to get to know you all soon. Hopefully we bump into each other at the Autocar Drag Event this feb.

regards
Ameya

Hey ameya

which Ferraris do u have? I had seen a Mclaren F1 road car but only in GTR racing form. Its very difficult to source one. Even more difficult is to procure Ferraris. You just dont get them . I finally got my hands on a Ferrari 355 Spider after craving for it for 2 years.

I have about 55 1:18 cars. I'll have a list for you if you want
